Home again: A column by Wendi Reardon Price

You may or may not have gone to a Clarkston home football game. This is what happens at a home football game – the community fills the stands to cheer on their football team, their cheerleading team, their dance team and their marching band. The excitement can be felt from the stands starting from the […]

Wendi’s Word: Adventurous tot

Each day is a new adventure with a 20-month-old son who is no longer an infant and just beginning the toddler stage. JD’s latest adventure takes him to the Detroit Zoo. On the sunny, warm Tuesday he walked up to the glass for the first stop and peered closely at the penguins, watching them waddle […]

Wendi’s Word: Literary hopes

Every parent has hopes and wishes for their children. My hope was for my 19-month-old son to enjoy books and we didn’t have to wait long to find out he does enjoy books. He has piles of books in a storage bin in his bedroom, more in his closet and in his play area. He […]

Wendi’s Word: Magic moment on the court as Wolves win

Wendi’s Word: Food reflections

I have been reflecting a lot on my eating habits recently. It comes from having a 15-month-old son who is eating more and more of what we eat every day and being on Shape ReClaimed again through Nuview Nutrition. I have always had a problem with portion control. I love to eat. I love food. […]

Spring startover: a column by Wendi Reardon Price

It happened. I had hoped and prayed to the pizza gods someone would drop off a pie topped with the perfect blend of cheese, sauce and pepperoni to our office downtown. It happened and it occurred one week too late for me. Our Assistant Publisher Don Rush took advantage of the buy one, get one […]
